Did you know that an ambulance ride could cost you thousands?
We paid a $24,000 air ambulance fare in 2018 with zero out-of-pocket expenses for our member.
Ambulance transport is generally very expensive. In NSW for instance, the minimum ambulance charge for an emergency call-out is $392 before you even hit the road where a per kilometre charge of $3.54 kicks in. The maximum charge for a road ambulance? $6,424. Ouch.
Remember, there are also air and sea ambulances, which cost even more – up to tens of thousands of dollars.
